GP Training



The Foundation conducts one and two-day skin cancer and melanoma workshops for GPs and GP trainees. We also conduct GP workshops on inflammatory skin diseases.

Our GP Skin Cancer Workshops are suitable for all GPs and GP registrars, whatever the level of experience. Developed and taught by experienced specialist dermatologist educators, these workshops are a perfect opportunity to skill up.


The inflammatory diseases workshop provides GPs an excellent opportunity to update their skills in examination, diagnosis and management of inflammatory disorders, which are commonly seen in general practice. 

These courses have been coordinated and facilitated by Dr Alvin Chong, Senior Lecturer in Dermatology, Victorian Censor for the Australasian College of Dermatologists, Head of Dermatology Education at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne and Specialist Dermatologist at the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc.



Our GP Workshops are accredited with the RACGP for their QI&CPD program. They are also accredited by the ACRRM.


Current Training sessions
